After a visit to Mauritius, Mark Twain wisely observed: “Mauritius was made first and then heaven; and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.” With a Mauritius villa, you will discover how this exotic destination still captivates, with an exciting mix of cultures, cuisine and the stunning natural beauty of sand-rimmed, turquoise lagoons.
Experience a villa in Mauritius
Adrift in the Indian Ocean, 1,250 miles east of Africa, Mauritius has long been a getaway among the jet set, who are still drawn today by exceptional golf, stylish boutiques and the Marlin World Cup. Luxury villas in Mauritius allow you to sample the island’s unique mosaic of Chinese, Indian, French and African cuisine, the rousing beat of séga music and the infectious party spirit of the locals.
Shop for local delights and dine at your Mauritius ocean villa after visiting the bustling market at Port Louis, Africa’s wealthiest city, where vendors sell spices, vegetables, and fresh fish.
From surfing to kitesurfing, watersports abound on Mauritius. For tamer vacationers, tour the stunning botanical gardens in the northern town of Pamplemousses, containing gems like giant water lilies or take in the splendor of the dramatic virgin forests and hike the network of trails crisscrossing Black River Gorges National Park. So whether you surf the waves or soak up the sun, a Mauritius holiday villa offers many ways to enjoy this unusual island’s charms to the fullest.
